How to sign up for ChatGPT Plus

Open AI is rolling out the ChatGPT premium plan in stages. Currently, it is accessible only in the US. If it’s rolled out to you already, an "Upgrade plan" option can be found on the left slide menu.

If it is available for you, just click on it, set up a payment method and then you will be subscribed to the premium plan. With ChatGPT Plus, you will be able to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Always available (no blackout windows)
  • Fast responses from ChatGPT (i.e. no throttling)
  • As many messages as you need (at least 2X the regular daily limit)

No blackout windows mean you will no longer encounter the ChatGPT is at capacity right now error as you will be given priority over others when the servers are overloaded.

In addition, you can say goodbye to the "You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details" error as ChatGPT Plus offers you an unlimited number of queries.

ChatGPT Plus plan price

The ChatGPT Plus plan costs $20 per month. That means you will have to shell out $240 annually to enjoy the premium features.

Recent reports showed that OpenAI could be spending over $100K per day or $3 million per month on running costs, so the price seems fair. Many users aren't happy with this price tag, though.

Well, for an average person, spending $20 on an AI chatbot is too much, but the plan is aimed at users who want to use the bot for professional purposes. If you are a casual user, you are better off going with the free plan.
